Random Thursday Morning Thoughts

  • Funny: Graph showing quality of M. Night Shyamalan's movies over time. (But that's still a cool name.)
  • Study released indicates that pain pill abuse is up 400% in the last 10 years. I agree. Big time.
  • I watched ESPN's The ESPY's last night which was broadcast live for the first time. Surprisingly not bad. (And I don't know who Michelle Beadle is, but everyone was talking about this dress -- I don't get the fuss.)
  • The murder/suicide of Coppell mayor and her daughter is one of the strangest stories I've ever seen. She left four typed notes primarily dealing with how to handle her affairs but with no explanations as to her actions.
  • When I hear stories like that, I sometimes think that crazy actions can be explained by a defective brain that we simply don't understand. Just like machines can be defective even when made to work, can that same principle apply to people who are a million times more complicated than the most complex machine?
  • DPS troopers find $2 million in a big rig in Texas but no drugs, and the driver denies knowledge of it. So the government just takes the money? Why?
  • Dave Campbell's Texas Football puts Bridgeport at #16 going into the season.
  • I finally got sucked in and listened to one of the Mel Gibson tapes yesterday. That boy is certifiable crazy. Or maybe the word is defective.
  • My writing style is like that of Edgar Allen Poe. Find out yours here.
  • "A Mesa woman greeted police officers in the nude and holding a beer after allegedly vandalizing her boyfriend's car with a dog leash, court records state." If I told you there was a book-in photo of her would you click on it?
  • Golf fans could have awoken/awakened/woke up at 3:30 this morning and watched live coverage of the British Open. (Only appreciated in my brain: Remember Kevin Costner's character in Tin Cup? His name was Roy McAvoy. The leader of the British Open as I type this is a golfer named Rory McIlroy.)
  • A Dallas man hired a buddy to injure him with a gunshot so he could blame it on his ex-wife and then get custody of his child. Sounds like a plan. What could possible go wrong? Story.
